06marAll Day20Virtual EventAMBA SAYAL-BENNETT | A TRACK TO BARE

Event Details

In this online exhibition Amba Sayal-Bennett presents a new series of works on paper. The machinic forms explore drawing as apparatus of production: its form-building capacity. Taking pleasure in the virtual, Sayal-Bennett investigates the emergence of form through the inherent incompleteness of drawing. As an opening up or sketching out, drawing is always directed towards the future. Available for interpretation and re-translation, the works connect to what they are not in order to maximise themselves. They are polyvocal, promiscuously evoking many references whilst resisting being fixed to one. The outlines are not preconceived by the artist but arise though her coupling with material devices: stencils, paper, pens. Like following a thread in the dark, Sayal-Bennett explores how drawing is a process of unveiling- not of what was there before, but that which emerges from the encounter.
